Until 1767, San José de Lules was a Jesuit reducción (Indian settlement created by Spanish missionaries) among the region's Lule Indians. After the Jesuits' expulsion, the Dominicans assumed control of the complex - their ruins, which date from the 1880s, once served as a school. The small museum has replicas of colonial documents and a plethora of busts of various Argentine independence heroes.
